Brigade of Four
English version coming late 2020
A game about silence, disobedience and coming of age, after the abuse of a life devoted to war.
4 players take over the roles of four archetypes: the Example, the Reprimanded, the Excluded, and the Loner. Each one has their own triggers to take control over the storytelling, and decide how to lead the group. If they don't have control, they stay silent and do as they're told. The game has a main storyline, presented through cards that will propose events, tasks, or hard choices for the players to make.
The game was created to evoke a feeling of opression. The story talks about sex, violence, bigotry, self discovering... and above all the natural human necessity of relating, communicating, socializing. How could one that never got to be accepted by own merits, silently obeying for a whole life, not recognizing that body as its own.
